“2016 Sam Hill World Champs Nukeproof Pulse”
World Champs is that one off event where we like to drop something special for our elite riders. For 2016 we spoke with Sam and asked about his favourite bikes from yesteryear. His first proper race BMX came up- a 1996 Auburn CR20s. He bloody loved that thing! What better way to mark his return to ’96 World Champs at the legendary Val Di Sol track.
Unfortunately with a challenging few years after injury and struggling to regain full fitness; and with Sam Hill‘s switch of focus to the Enduro World Series after some amazing results, this Pulse wasn’t able to break cover for the return for the 2016 World Championships.
